Late update

I'm sorry about the tardiness on this update, but it's been a hectic day.

Ktreva came out of her surgery with no complications. They took more surface tissue off and again, the wound is open until the get the rest of the biopsies back. She's in a lot of pain right now. The area was already sensitive from the previous surgery and now the added procedure just compounded that pain. She's being a trooper about the pain.

However, she is still NOT following doctor's orders. She was told not to stretch, lift anything over a gallon of milk at the most, and to just rest and take it as easy as possible. Yea, well she's not doing any of the above. She stretched to hang up Christmas cards, has lifted suitcases and laundry baskets, attempted to put groceries away before I could get to them, etc. Yea, she's on the naughty list... and not the good naughty list.

Her stocking would be filled with coal, except I can't afford coal, and actually with the asking price, it's a pretty expensive gift!

Other than that, she's doing good. We are expecting to hear what else needs to be done with in a week. We know she'll have to have at least one more surgery, to close the wound. Hopefully that will be it.

On a bright side I did get some good news on my work situation. I'm pretty much out of danger from going to jail. Sarbanes Oxley (SOx) doesn't apply to my company. Even though we are voluntarily complying for with it's regulations. My company is a not for profit company and not publicly traded. SOx is designed to protect investors after the Enron and MCI Worldcom scandals. Thus, thanks to that loophole I'm clear of any unintentional or accidental wrong doing! Either way, I've amended how I sign off on the reports.

Now if you'll excuse me I need to go make sure Ktreva is sitting down and taking it easy.

Can't say that I know what "groveriers" are, but she still shouldn't be trying to put them anywhere! ;-)

Don't make me come over there & sit on you, Ktreva!

There is some coal remnants in the old coal room in my house. Your welcome to it. Or call The Man From Ohio and get some clinkers out of his forge.

As far as keeping Ktreva in line, there is always duct tape. Following the doctors orders is absolutely necessary to a full recovery. Don't make me send in Omar the wunderpuppy to hold you down in all his Spinone-y slobbery goodness.

Good news, and keep us posted. Sedate that woman if you have to, but keep her resting!

Whew - glad to hear the surgery went well, even if she's not following doctor's orders.

I'm also glad to hear you aren't on the hook for a SOx offense.

Now I'll be praying that the next news from the doctor is good too.

Yea for both.

Tell her doctor she is not complying and have her/him tell her the consequences of not doing what she is told, should scare her into complying.

Glad to hear things are better on all fronts.
